About the Conference

Openness and innovation are major trends in contemporary education, influencing the whole spectrum of education institutions across the globe. Technological advancement and breakthroughs are bringing about a paradigm shift in contemporary education. Modes of learning and teaching are becoming more open and innovative in terms of time, space, curriculum contents, organization, pedagogical methods, infrastructure and requirements. These changes take place virtually in all institutions (offering conventional, online and/or open courses). With this background, Hong Kong Metropolitan University (HKMU) organizes the annual conferences on open and innovative education with the following aims to:

  • provide a platform for sharing quality research, effective practices and well-formulated views relevant to open and innovative education;
  • facilitate networking and cross-institutional collaboration among researchers and educators in fields of educational innovation and/or openness; and
  • promote studies and advancements in open and innovative education.

Building on the successes of the conference series in nine previous years, this year marks the 10th anniversary of the conference. The 2023 International Conference on Open and Innovative Education (ICOIE 2023) will be held at Hong Kong Metropolitan University on 12–14 July 2023. It will explore relevant key issues, with a special focus on the innovative pedagogical mode: agile-blended learning.

1st day and 2nd day in parallel with the Symposium on Agile-Blended Learning

Participants of ICOIE 2023 will automatically be eligible to attend all sessions of the symposium. No further registration is needed.
